JDRF Input Fusion, diabetes technology

LIVINGLIVING

T

aking place back in June,

INPUT: FUSION was a

day-long conference and

exhibition which focused

on diabetes technology

and how to access it. The event, which

took place at Birmingham City Football

Club, was full-to-busting with a lively,

animated mood. Several speakers took

the stage to share their experiences of

improving access to diabetes technology

or of using it, from Libre sensors to insulin

pumps and indeed even to DIY 'looping'

(we explain what that is, read on!).

Dr Partha Kar explained how access

to diabetes technology is changing,

but agrees that it's too hard and too

slow. Actor, comedian and ex-footballer

Jonsel Ghourkan talks about his life with

diabetes. Our coverage can't capture

how funny he was on stage about it. And

INPUT: FUSION

An overview of JDRF's technology access and exhibition from earlier in

the year. By Sue Marshall

'looper' Andy Slowly talks us through DIY

APS (artifical pump systems).

Lesley Jordan, Senior Technology

Access Specialist at JDRF, commented

after the event, "Input:JDRF was delighted

the day went so well and that so many

people both enjoyed and benefited from

it. Feedback from the day was hugely

positive, with each of the speakers getting

a mention as someone's 'favourite part of

the day.' The tech exhibition remained

a firm favourite too. We are in the early

stage of planning Fusion 2020 and will let

everyone know more as soon as we can."

My apologies that this has taken

so long to get this coverage into the

magazine and that some of the photos

are a bit blurry. It was a packed house and

the speakers were passionate ,so it was

hard to get good shots!
